The Hamilton County Court of Domestic Relations announced Thursday that they will begin issuing Civil Domestic Violence Protection Order wallet cards to assist victims of domestic violence and law enforcement.
According to court documents, a petitioner who obtains a Civil Protection Order, after a full hearing, will be provided a free wallet card that will provide police agencies with a practical way to verify and enforce orders.
The wallet card is a convenient method for domestic violence victims to provide evidence of a Civil Protection Order.
Administrative Judge Susan Laker Tolbert said the card will contain vital information, including the name of the person ordered to stay away and identifying characteristics, names of protected persons and the dates of issuance and expiration.
Any person with a Civil Protection Order granted prior to Thursday may request a free wallet card.
